I don't think its going to look anything like that old Taurus. I'm hoping for some dynamic styling similar to the new Taurus in general. I really am not that happy with the way the new Focus hatch looks while on the other hand i really love most of the new US built and designed Fords

Hmm still looks like they just put the Mondeo body on her for now. I don't think the body work is quite final yet.

If you look back at my link that is final body work there...

I also see no similarity between the Mondeo mule one and the horrible 1996 generation Taurus greenhouse. They know better than to do anything like that again.

You really are not up to speed with Ford or Lincoln. Do you realize that Ford has only created a separate Lincoln organization in the past year? Before that, Lincoln was treated as an afterthought, just like Mercury. From the time Mulally took over Ford until the past year, the focus has been on survival, then reviving the core Ford brand.

With that mission well under way and reaping consistent profits in a down market, Ford has now turned their attention to Lincoln. Lincoln has been given its own design team (a first), as well as other bespoke organization. We know from Ford's public announcements that Lincoln will have bespoke sheet metal, top end electronics, hard top convertibles, and more. Ford cannot rush the products to market, they will come forth through the normal product gestation. We will see the new MKZ at either LA or one of the early 2012 auto shows. Those who have seen the clays (journalists, not homeboys) say it is stunning and noteworthy. We have to wait and see.

Everything you wrote might have been true a year or so ago, but is no longer the case. Instead, you come off as uninformed and rash.

Buick is atleast proving that Fwd hardware can be well packaged and sold at premium prices; beating the ES at its own game.

I have very high hopes for this car, but from the spy shots I don't find the proportions quite as pleasing as those on the Regal.

It just occurred to me that while the Fusion only came in sedan form, all 3 generations of Mondeo have been available in sedan, hatch and estate. I wonder if these same guises will be available on the next model in Europe and if this also means that Ford NA is willing to at least give a Fusion Estate a chance there.

Probably will because of a Regal Estate coming from GM. So that will probably spearhead Ford to bring a Fusion Estate as well down to NA.
